Having failed to pick up any points in the opening half pipe event of the season Bowman turned that around last month with victory in Copper Mountain.

And the X Games SuperPipe champion was at it again, pipping Japan's Ayana Onozuka to top spot with Switzerland's Virginie Faivre settling for third.

The win sees Bowman not sitting pretty atop the half pipe World Cup leaderboard on 200 points, 20 ahead of Onozuka with Faivre in third on 132.

Meanwhile, in the men's event there was plenty more for the home crowd to shout about as they saw two more Americans on the podium.

Taking the win was David Wise, his first of the season, while compatriot Torin Yater-Wallace finished second with Frenchman Kevin Rolland taking third.

Wise, also a 2013 X Games SuperPipe champion, now sits third on 160 points, 15 behind France's Thomas Krief who finished fourth in Park City, while Yater-Wallace is in top spot on 180.
